Sunny side up...
THE SUNNY Cowgirls, singer-songwriters Sophie and Celeste Clabburn, have promised a surprising and intimate performance at the Gayndah Show.
While the sisters can rock out a B&S ball, it was time, they said, to put the spotlight on their songs of life on the land in an acoustic, heartfelt performance.
With no one sister taking the lead, Celeste said: “It’s nerve-wracking though, this tour will be pretty unique and we may not ever do it again”.
“This is just Soph and I talking about the songs, the influences, and pretty much presenting them as they were first written,” she said.
“It makes us pretty vulnerable on stage, but it’s the time for us to do it.”
While new songs and a few surprises have been promised, the show will include favourites from their five albums, including Six Pack Short, Summer, and Green and Gold.
Green and Gold, written by Sophie and described as a love-song to Australia, was inspired by a glance over Broome from an aircraft window.
“I saw the blue ocean, the red dirt, the sunset – a million different colours – and I realised that we truly are living inside a rainbow, which became a recurring image in the song,” Sophie said.
The sisters, who were finalists at this year’s Country Music Awards of Australia, will be supported by Jonny Taylor.
A finalist in Australia’s Got Talent two years ago, Jonny has gone on to win several awards including best male artist inWestern Australia’s Country Music Awards for 2013 and 2014.
